I want to make my wedding special by adding lots of DIY touches. So as a unique favor idea, I was thinking of possibly collecting vintage snack sized plates and having my family and I all bake cookies a month before the wedding and freeze them until the big day. I wanted to have a table where guests pick out their own vintage plate (where each one will have "Rachael & John" and the date we're getting married on the back) and then they help themselves to cookies and put them on their plate, put it in a sheer drawstring pouch so it is portable for the road.
My only concerns:
- we'll already have cake, a dessert table, and lots of food before that, so I'm worried everyone will be full before.
- I also don't want to go through all the effort of collecting/washing plates, baking cookies, etc. if people think it's a bad idea/most people won't stop at the table to pick something up.
- And also worried the drawstring bags may not fit all of the plates with the cookies in them (I saw they had 6x9 inch bags).
I'm open for any thoughts or suggestions!
